PFAS + Marquette County

PFAS + Marquette County

As a Marquette County resident, you and the 66,403 people living in your community need to stay informed about the threat posed by toxic PFAS contamination.

A quick look at the numbers in Marquette County:

  • There is 1 site contaminated with toxic PFAS.
  • 17% of residents are over the age of 65, and their health can be aggravated by PFAS contamination.
  • 4.4% are children, who are especially vulnerable to PFAS.

To combat the harmful effects of PFAS, we must:

  • Raise funds to clean up the K.I. Sawyer AFB.
  • Raise awareness of PFAS contamination in Marquette County waterways, and conduct local events to educate boaters and swimmers of the risks associated with PFAS.
  • Recruit volunteers in key communities such as Powell and Champion to get the word out about this risk to our community.
  • Raise funds to continue testing important water sources like Arfelin Lake.
  • Raise awareness of potential PFAS contamination in Marquette County waterways.
